It would be nice if this could also be a command-line deal, eg.:

$ smbdc
> nmbd force-election
> smbd list pids
   smbd  user    OtherInfo
    666  jra     Tree id?
   3267  tridge  How 'bout share name?

That sort of thing.  I'm finishing up my contract stint, so a little time
will be freed up.  I have a backlog to catch up on, but I want to finish
the WINS failover (need Jeremy to okay a few things first).  After that--
though probably not for the next release--I've got:
